Anyone else watching?

Cringing ever so slightly here.

I don't know if it's a parody or not. Like 'Life's too Short' was. I can't tell. confused

I couldn't get through the intro before turning over.

SuffolkNWhat Mon 13-Jul-15 21:28:06

It's skating a thin line between parody and just awful

It's just a huge advert for his (presumably, doing badly) company. Why's the BBC doing this? Why am I watching??

SuffolkNWhat Mon 13-Jul-15 21:30:15

I was thinking the same thing Swedish I can't turn it off!

MrsTrelis Mon 13-Jul-15 21:33:20

DP has gone upstairs and I can't reach the remote control without moving off my arse so I have to watch it. confused I'm strangely interested...

SuffolkNWhat Mon 13-Jul-15 21:37:05

It's pure car crash TV. What happened to Jackie?

SuffolkNWhat Mon 13-Jul-15 21:41:09

Oh that look the British Council woman gave the camera!

What's he doing with the plastic bag? What an idiot!

MissDemelzaCarne Mon 13-Jul-15 21:47:05

He shouldn't have answered that phone!

SuffolkNWhat Mon 13-Jul-15 21:47:14

Answering your phone mid pitch?! <head/desk>

Incredibly rude. He also treated his driver in China like shit.

He's sooo Alan Partridge its cringeworthy but I just can't bring myself to switch it off! His suits are way too tight and he's clearly desperate. But bless! Love his wife though would've liked to see more of her

SuffolkNWhat Mon 13-Jul-15 21:57:46

Why are they subtitling the Chinese business partner? His English is excellent!

I thought he answered the phone in the Mexican meeting as retaliation for not getting to meet the head buyer and only finding out at the meeting. Very rude of him though. Peculiar programme all round.

LLB performs an extraordinary anatomical feat: he is able to talk through his @rse while his head is firmly up it.

Those cheesy shots of himself he gave away! He is so full,of himself, a sort of David Brent / Alan Partridge character, but real! His wife seems nice though...

Davros Mon 20-Jul-15 23:48:44

I couldn't believe that awful photo of himself he gave as a gift not sure if it was ironic or serious. He was squeezed into those fancy suits and had to deport himself very carefully. Enjoyed it but a bit agog!
